|Paul Konerko thinks he's close|
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(12:56 am ET) White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko went 0 for 3 with a walk and a run scored Monday against Boston. Still, he feels he's close to turning a corner, MLB.com reports.
Konerko, batting .220 on the year, said he's swung the bat better the past few days prior to Monday's game.
"I had a few hits the day before yesterday and was probably better yesterday and didn't get any," said Konerko, who entered Monday's game hitting .224 with four homers and 17 RBI. "In this game, close and the results are kind of two different things. There has been lot of moments that you're close and it feels like you got it, but sometimes that has to line up with somebody not catching a ball, the wind not knocking down a ball -- those little moments where that can kind of turn it for you. That hasn't happened."

(5/20/13) White Sox DH Paul Konerko had a season-high three hits Saturday against the Angels, which prompted manager Robin Ventura to say Sunday he sees Konerko showing signs of "getting his swing where he wants it."
"Some of the at-bats he was having, the ball's coming off the bat a little different," Ventura said to MLB.com. "He's getting it through the zone. I don't want to put it out that he has to hit homers, just hit it hard. He has the ability to hit it out of the ballpark, but I don't want it to be an all-or-nothing thing that he has got to start forcing himself to do. Be a tough out or at-bat and the rest will take care of itself."

(5/15/13) White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko is back in the lineup Wednesday against Minnesota, CSN Chicago reports.
Konerko has been held out of the lineup for the past two games in an attempt to knock the veteran out of a season-long slump. Konerko has just a .623 OPS over 126 at-bats.
|Paul Konerko not in White Sox's lineup|

(5/14/13) White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko is not in the team's starting lineup Tuesday against the Twins.
Konerko did not play Monday either after admitting he was a bit "worn down." He's struggled to begin the year, hitting just .214/.273/.349 in 126 at-bats. Adam Dunn will play first and bat fourth with Konerko out.
|Slumping Paul Konerko takes a seat|
|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(5/13/13) White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko received the night off for Monday's series opener against the Twins.
"Yeah, I'm a little worn down, like everybody,'' Konerko told the Chicago Sun-Times.
The 37-year-old is batting just .172 with a .250 slugging percentage in his last 16 games but has hit .360 with runners in scoring position.
"[It's been] a little bit of everything,'' Konerko said. "I really can't complain with the at-bats I've had lately. I've done what I wanted to do. It's just finishing it off.''
|Paul Konerko finished 2012 with a .298 batting average and 26 home runs, numbers that look good, but are a far cry from the .366 average and 1.062 OPS he sported on June 2. Why is that date important? It preceded a three-game break in which Konerko had a procedure on his wrist to alleviate the pain caused by a bone chip. From June 7 on, Konerko hit .263 with a .749 OPS. In October, Konerko underwent surgery to remove the loose body and all indications are that he will be ready for spring training. The 37-year-old first baseman is one of the steadier players in Fantasy, with the realistic expectations every year of a .280 average and 33 home runs. He's also durable -- since 2004, he's played in fewer than 144 games just once. In points leagues, Konerko finished slightly behind teammate Adam Dunn in the overall rankings last year (Konerko was 65, Dunn was 61), but with a full season and a (hopefully) healthy wrist ahead of him, Konerko could end up as a top 10 first baseman in 2013, and will likely be drafted by the time double-digit rounds start.
